    NTSB bridge findings already criticized - By JIM FOTI, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar, D-Minn., who chairs the House Transportation Committee, has been at odds with the NTSB during the course of the bridge inquiry. And he remains skeptical of the agency's suggestion that gusset plate design was solely responsible for the collapse. 'It stretches both credibility and past experience with bridge structural failure to find causation through a single factor,' he said Sunday.

    Oberstar also criticized the agency for what he said 'appears to be a selective leak. ... I can't recall a previous leak of critical information in so serious an investigation as this one.'
